Marshall Medical cardiologist Dr. Kathleen Evans walked a group of seniors step-by-step through simple ways of keeping their hearts healthy with easy lifestyle changes.
“Cardiovascular disease is preventable,” Dr. Kathleen Evans explained at the GoldCare55+ February luncheon. “One in four Americans die of heart disease every year. Often a heart attack is the first sign of heart disease.”
“If you don’t like where you are then get up and change it,” she advised. “You are not a tree. You are free to move and change things.”
